Sponsor a SkyHydrant in Timor Leste


During the DAA Conference on the 12th November as important topic was our future aid programs.

Our interest is developing a greater presence in Timor-Leste was helped by presentations of other organisations involved in helping that country.

Following the Conference the DAA board decided that they would extend our ‘Safe Water for Every Child program of ‘Sponsored SkyHydrants’ to Timor-Leste.

We will be working with two new partners; Yooralla Youth Ministeries and WH WASH Consultants as well as continuing to support our existing partner Rotary Projects Timor-Leste East.


Our plan is for the installation of at least 3 units to June 2023.

For 2023-20224 and beyond we would hope to attract enough support for 10 SkyHydrants every year.

SkyHydrant in Shipping Container for Timor Leste

During Construction

Disaster Aid Australia have been pleased to play a small part in this project by Rotary Projects Timor-Leste East (RPTLE), based in Western Australia.

The unit is now supplying 10,000 litres of clean filtered potable water every day to the students and the local community of the Don Bosco centre in Comoro, Dhili.

The project of the Rotary Club of Kwinana , led by project manager Max Bird, also involved considerable support from the Rotary Club of Phillip Island and San Remo, in Victoria.

With the problems of COVID the role of Brother Adriano and the students of The Don Bosco Technical Training Centre has been vital in completing the construction.

The Completed Project

Prior to its final installation the SkyHydrant was used in a temporary installation in response to the Dhili Floods in April this year.
